A weird but unenforced law in Tulais would be the prohibition of wearing blue during weddings. Historically blue was considered a symbol and color of the Tulesian nobility and was reserved for them, especially the Crown, and forbidding any weddings from presenting blue-dressed individuals was to make sure that an outsider could tell what class was being married.

Nowadays blue is worn by pretty much everyone and is no longer considered reserved, although the royal family still traditionally wears it during ceremonies.

The Chinese government only has itself to blame for the rise of sinophobia.

Breaking News: Philippinae recognizes the new anti-China government of Sri Lanka and Kenya. || Weapons shipment to pro-China rebels intercepted. Chinese smugglers arrested, will be facing trial and possible torturous execution.

OOC: There is really nothing wrong in speaking or studying chinese languages. What I find objectionable is that universities allow a chinese government-funded Confucius Institute to operate within their walls and spew chinese government propaganda crap to students and stifle the academic freedom of these institutions.

Most of our laws have to do with our glorious leader, the Magnificient Dr. FunFrock in one way or the other. Examples are:

- Sneezing, coughing, yawning, farting and burping are prohibited in close vicinity to Dr. FunFrocks headquarters, his fortress on Fortress Island, his many statues and busts and ofcourse, our beloved Doctor himself as such acts of disrespect are counted as treason on our planet and are punished with a minimum of 200 days in Citadel Prison or another correctional facility.

- Vandalism of aforementioned statues, busts and even posters of our Magnificient Dr. FunFrock count as treason and is punished by a minimum of 200 days in Citadel Prison or another correctional facility.

- Making fun of the looks of our Magnificient Dr. FunFrock, his way to speak or his leadership is punishable by death, either through Firing Squads or dissection in Citadel Prison or another correctional facility.

- Blocking the telepads or the patrolling routes of soldiers and clones is prohibited on all islands. Punishment is up to the blocked soldier/clone and will most likely result in just shooting in your face.

- Any mentioning of archaic religious nonsense like the so-called "Legend of Sendell" and the "Sacred Carrot of Himalayi Mountain" or belief in "old prophecies" are punishable by a life-sentence in Citadel Prison that doubles as the planet´s first and only mental hospital too.

- Have fun on Planet Twinsun, and remember - Dr. FunFrock is watching you. ;)

In Wardie land it is legal to shoot a Snowlandian with a musket at any time before 8 PM in the city of Litvigrad, providing they are performing suspicious activity, this law dates from the First Snow War of 1818 between Wardie land and the Kingdom and Empire of Snow Land, following which Litvigrad became part of Wardie land's newly acquired Northern Colonies, which were the colonial possessions of Snow Land conquered by Wardie land during the war, Wardie land was naturally worried about the Litvigradians, many of whom might've still held loyalty to Snow Land and become spies, the nation that had ruled them for around 200 years by that point, so a law was passed stating that any Litvigradian found "conducting suspicious activity" could be legally executed by musket before 8 PM (this time was specified as not to disturb folks as they slept), if they were found after this time they would either have to be captured and held to the morning or killed by some silent means, this law was shortly after expanded to include all Snowlandians, no matter place of origin.

Probably no abortions, not because of the law itself, but because of the context. All children that would have been aborted become property of the state, are raised in state wards, and put through special forces training at the age of sixteen. They then serve in the military until they die or become useless.
